That Spring in Paris

(women’s fiction / romance) Release date: May 25, 2017 at Lion’s Paw Publishing ISBN: 978-0988940871 ebook: 978-0988940864 468 pages Website Goodreads


Two Americans literally collide at the entrance to a Paris hospital, each desperately searching for friends felled in the same unspeakable tragedy. Patrick Finley Deschanel, an expatriate former U.S. Air Force pilot, quit the military after a career flying helicopter rescue missions in the Middle East. Now resident on a classic barge moored on the Seine, Finn is a man with both physical battle scars and psychic wounds that overshadow his day-to-day encounters at every turn. Juliet Thayer is a fledgling landscape painter who seeks escape from a tyrannical older brother and her job at his violent video war games company in San Francisco. Her emergency trip to Paris also raises doubts as to her impending engagement to a colleague where she serves as packaging design director and “Chief Branding Officer” of GatherGames, a highly speculative enterprise in which her parents are heavily invested. As Finn and Juliet form a tenuous attachment in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks that traumatized the French capital November 13, 2015, they wonder if the “City of Light” can provide a path out of the darkness for two emotional exiles who fear–along with the world at large—that their universe has descended into a permanent state of chaos and that the renewal of spring might never come. New York Times bestselling novelist and Emmy-award winning news producer Ciji Ware displays her formidable skill at weaving fact and fiction–delivering a gripping story about the discovery of love and regained serenity in the wake of horrifying events.


It was an intense, engaging, dramatic, very deep reading: the author is very good at describing the feeling of insecurity, confusion, terror, rage following a terrorist attack.
Finn is an US soldier with deep internal wounds to heal. He decides to leave the army and retire to Paris to start a new life. He lives in a boat pursued by his nightmares, never a quiet and serene night. Until one night the son of the boat owner (a friend of his aunt Claudine) warns him of a terrible terrorist attack on the heart of Paris. His son is hurt and hospitalized in an American hospital and asks Finn if he can accompany him. Juliet lands in Paris on Monday after the terrorist attack, her friend asked for help, was injured, hospitalized in the American hospital. She no longer has news and must be sure she is fine. In the hospital she collides with Finn, a fortuitous distraction that will change forever the life of both.
It's the fourth book of the series "Four Seasons Quartet Book", I did not read the precedents but I'm really curious to do it, also because they are set in places I adore (Edinburgh, Cornwall, Venice)
This is the first book that I have read by this author but it won't be  the last: I've been impressed with her descriptions, it just seems to be there.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are realistic and lovable, the plot is well written and well developed, the pace is fast: this book keeps glued to pages from start to finish.
Highly recommended
